Photo: Fidel Castro Wearing His Sunglasses at Night

Apropos of nothing, here’s an image of Fidel Castro pitching for a team called Los Barbudos (i.e. The Bearded Ones) during an exhibition game shortly after he (i.e. Castro) led a successful revolution to remove former Cuban leader Fulgencio Batista from power.

Why he would wear sunglasses (or, at the very least, dark-looking spectacles) at such a late hour remains a mystery even into the present. Asked at the time, Castro replied (quite mysteriously), “So I can, so I can watch you weave then breathe your storylines.”
